The American takeover of Swansea City worth an estimated £100m is on the brink of being completed.

Businessmen Jason Levien and Steve Kaplan lead a consortium that is in talks to buy a 60% stake.

Legal details which had delayed the conclusion of the deal are now understood to have been resolved.

Once Levien and Kaplan pass the Premier League’s test for prospective owners and directors, the takeover can be officially approved.

BBC Wales Sport revealed in April which of Swansea’s directors would be selling all – or part – of their shares.
